April fools day; sadness

Guinea-Pigs_1_05.28.10.jpg

I’m not sure what made me check, but before heading out to church this morning, I discovered that my daughter’s guinea pig (Daizy) wasn’t moving. Her name wasn’t spelled incorrectly, check out the post about our guinea pigs, if you want to know why her name isn’t spelled like the flower.

Unfortunately, my daughters little fur princess died sometime this morning. My daughter was right behind me, so there was no way I could prevent her from seeing her little pal (and delaying the outburst of tears that came).

As expected, we didn’t make it to church today. Her choir was singing at our Lutheran church this morning, but they wouldn’t have heard my daughter — not with all that sobbing. Truth is, I’ll miss Daizy too, she’s the black guinea pig shown in the above photo. She was our most active of the two, and quite feisty.

I found a suitable burial cloth for Ms. Daizy, and buried her beside our most loveliest rose bush. Incidentally, my dog Lalita is buried there too.
